The watermelon is yellow

P1040166

I don’t know about you but I have never seen a yellow watermelon – well, until a few days ago that is. Apparently these guys are pretty common in Japan and actually the price is not any higher than their good, old, red counterparts. The taste is pretty similar too, if a little sweeter. I think the outside of these is also a shade of yellow as opposed to green which makes it look almost like an over side melon as opposed to a watermelon. I wonder if these are indigenous to Asia…

in Taiwan it's pretty common to see yellow watermelons. personally I like the yellow ones better than the red ones, because of the smell and the "crunchiness" :)

Have you ever seen any in the US? I don't remember GE carrying them but then Giant Eagle isn't exactly known for the variety it offers ;)

I suspect the ones I saw here in boston were bought from some oriental supermarket. and I can't recall seeing them @ GE when I was still in pittsburgh...
